Slim and Sculpt: 5 Exercises to Tone Your Neck and Shoulders

Who wouldn’t want a neck and shoulders line that is so slim it can cut through butter? Fear not! We’ve got you covered.

It is about time to say goodbye to those pesky double chins and shoulder bumps. But how?

The answer is right here! Just a perfect selection of exercises that can be done anywhere in the comfort of your own home. Intrigued already? So how about we work on that neck and shoulders, and soon enough, they will be slimmer and sleeker than a cheetah on ice skates.

I-Time to Slim the Neck and Shoulders: The Dips Exercise:

– Start by finding a stable surface, say some sturdy chairs for example.

– Place the chairs shoulder-width apart and place your hands on the surface.

– Lower down your body until your arms are at a 90-degree angle.

– Now push back up to the starting position.

– Start with 10 to 15 reps, then make your way up.

II-Loosen Up and Relieve Tension:

– First, stand with good posture and keep your feet hip-width apart.

– Now place your hands on your shoulders.

– Slowly rotate your shoulders forward or backward in a circular motion.

– Make sure you reverse the direction with each rep.

– Now lift your shoulders towards your ear and leave them there for a few seconds.

– Relax them down and repeat, and remember to move slowly.

III-Pull-up Burpees:

Nothing can guarantee better results than the perfect duo: burpees and pull-ups. When joined together, they form an explosive full-body exercise that works your arms, chest, abs, back, and shoulders.

– To do this, start by standing in a position where your feet are shoulder-width apart.

– Squat down and put your hand on the ground.

– Now send your feet back into a plank position and do a push-up.

– As you push back up, jump your feet back toward your hands.

– Stand up and jump off the floor, then grab the pull-up bar.

– Perform a pull-up while slowly lowering your body.

– Once the pull-up is done, you drop back to the ground and start over.

IV-Side Arm Raise:

Must be the best resistance exercise that targets your shoulders and arms. Let’s build some shoulder strength and tone arm muscles.

– As usual, stand straight, have your feet shoulder-width apart, and hold a dumbbell in each hand.

– Raise your arms out to the sides until they are parallel to the ground and hold that position.

– Now slowly lower them back down and repeat as many times as you desire.


Push-ups are the ultimate exercise for building strength and endurance in the shoulders and arms. By performing them regularly, you can improve your upper body strength.

– If you happen to be a beginner, you can start with knee push-ups and then gradually perform regular push-ups.

– If you are to start with 3 sets of 10 push-ups each day, you will see results very quickly.

– Start in a plank position with your hands shoulder-width apart.

– Lower your body down to the ground by bending your elbows

– Make sure you keep your back straight and your core fully engaged

– Push back up to the starting position and repeat.

VI-Pay Attention:

– When doing neck and shoulders exercises at home, it is highly important to put a few points into consideration so you don’t accidentally hurt yourself (and possibly those around you – jk)

– First and foremost, never try too much too soon. With shoulders and neck, always start slow and work your way up to more reps and sets.

– Listen to your pain! If you feel pain during exercise, stop immediately. That is your body’s way of telling you that something is not right.

– Always warm up first and take enough time to do it pre-workout to prevent any possible injury. Better safe than sorry.
